A wonderful time was had by the 10 men and 2 women at the
Cricket All-Star qualifier on Saturday, Sept. 20th at Airway Lanes.
Lisa Jones squared off against Carol Dobek in the ladies
match. Congratulations goes out to Lisa Jones for defeating Carol.
In the men's, we had 2 groups of 5 men each in the first

In the second round robin, Topher finished with 2 points,
Tim Jones finished with 3 points, Jimmy Smith finished with 6 points, and in
what many might consider a stunner, Mike Evans wins the tournament with 7
points. I was watching the matches and Mike was spot-on this day and
deserved to advance to the Regionals on Saturday, November 1st in
In what can only be described as great sportsmanship (or in
this case, sportswomanship), Lisa has agreed to let Carol Dobek represent our
league in Grand Rapids so she could be there with Mike.
In addition, I'd like to thank the spectators that stopped
by to cheer on our darters and a big thanks to Airway Lanes for opening up
their venue for this event. We were able to use the 8 new wall mounted
boards upstairs and did not have to bring any of our own boards to the venue.
This saved a LOT of time since we didn't have to set up or tear down boards.
We started at 11:30 AM and were finished by 3:30 PM. The total time of
the tournament was 4 hours. Please note that we will try and start our
qualifier tournaments at 11 AM from now on, when the venue is able to open
Best of luck to Carol and Mike in Grand Rapids.
